Effective trainers know how to connect with participants in order to guide them in their learning. Training people remotely can be a challenge as it is more difficult to remain interesting and relevant while engaging participants who are often not used to remote learning. In this course, you will acquire tips and tools to boost interaction, collect feedback and fully engage your participants throughout your training session.
